i took her out for a spin this morning,feeding it 1 rd. @ a time,inspected the first 5 cases...they all looked good.i loaded up 10rds. & did a lil mag dump...all 10 cases looked good also
after cleaning it i checked the chamber insert w/bore light & it looks pretty sound....still dont like the idea of loctite holding it in place
if it comes out on me,i wonder if a gunsmith could silver solder or pin it in place?
it is a pretty cool rifle...kinda heavy,but it helps tame the lil bit of recoil it has,not much more kick than a .22mag
as for reloading for the rifle,im sure it would be worth it,as i dont know how accurate these rifles are...but the 7.62x45 rd. kinda looks like a x39 on steroids...but as for paying more for dies then what i paid for the rifle...i just dont know about that???....i did see a set of used dies on gunbroker for 50bucks 'buy it now'...guess if i see some more dies popup on there i better snatch them up.
the rifle is a rocker,i like the trigger group assembly on this rifle the most (kinda like a small M1garand)w/a very nice crisp,clean pull...the gas system is something kinda weird though
never seen anything like it...as for cheap mags...only place i have looked for any was at numrich,& they where not so cheap...i really think w/ very little work,an AK mag will fit & function in this rifle....i know they made a 52/57 rifle that shoots the x39 rd. & have heard that you need these types of mags in the x45 rifle if using a insert or having the barrel set back & rechambered....when i loaded mine with 10rds,it fed just fine...do you have anymore of this ammo left?
